    Not totally unexpected I guess but I'm still peeved to have it.

    I've been referred to physio finally by the midwife, though she did say it might take up to a month!!! Grrr

    Oh hon you have all my sympathies. I had it with my daughter and it was agonizing. I spent pretty much the whole of the 3rd trimester sitting on the sofa with a hot water bottle on my pelvis.

    I really hope your physio referral comes through soon xxx

    Sorry to hear this hun, I know exactly how your feel. I hope you physio appointment comes through quickly, it really helped with mine. It is still painful but much more manageable.

    Big hugs x

    It's awful isn't it Leanne? I feel like I've been riding a very wide horse! Lol.

    Felipe heard my pelvis clicking when I stood up earlier too. I think he realises how bad it is now after I was crying in pain at the weekend :(

    It is awful hun. I can't believe that the medical profession can't do more. I take co-codomals for mine but they can make you constipated so have to take lactulose as well. I have a huge tubagrip belt thing that makes you feel like a big sausage and a SPD belt from the physio which helps a little. I also have crutches when it is really bad which takes the pressure of my pelvis when walking a bit. Make sure you keep your knees together when turning in bed and getting in and out of cars and sleep with pillows between your knees, ankles and one under your bump. It helps a little. xxxxxxxxx
